Am I Number 5?

1 in 5 women suffer with heavy periods (menorrhagia). Many women are not aware that it is a medical condition and put up with it for years before seeking treatment. Hologic developed the #aminumber5 awareness campaign to help women recognise and understand that heavy periods are a common medical condition. The campaign encouraged women to seek help from their GP and to discuss treatment options that could help improve their quality of life.

Supported charities

Endometriosis UK

Endometriosis devastates the lives of women and their families. Endometriosis UK helps them take back control. One in ten women endure unrelenting pain that affects every aspect of their lives each day. That’s over 1.5 million women who desperately need support and information to help them understand this chronic condition. They provide vital support services, reliable information and a community for those affected by endometriosis. Endometriosis UK is a very small organisation, striving for big results.
Wellbeing of Women

Wellbeing of Women find cures, treatments and preventions to improve and save the lives of women and their babies. Affiliated to the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, it’s the only charity funding research across the breadth of reproductive health and childbirth. Shockingly only 2.48% of all research is devoted to this vastly overlooked area. Most of routine treatments taken for granted in health care came about thanks to work Wellbeing has funded including: the importance of taking folic acid in pregnancy, the use of ultrasound in pregnancy and using lasers to treat cervical cancer.
